I’ve never considered us strictly a “glam”band… or a retro band for that matter. We are in a modern rock band in every sense of the word. By modern, what I mean is that we have absorbed four generations of rock music and let those influences out in what we do. At this point it’s all been done before. Bands that use synthesizers or electronica ,they’re just as retro as a band that uses guitars… Kraftwerk and Eno..they already did all that in the 70s. – Roger Deering
God forbid rock n roll still be fun AND good. What happened to songwriting? It’s all gimmick after gimmick or bands more concerned with a niche crowd. Smash Fashion are a true remedy for those seeking real deal rock that stomps, shines AND has great guitar solos. Real world stories? Check. Moments of escapism? Sure. One listen to “Marionette” from their Big Cat Love LP (reviewed HERE) and you’ll seem like a nazi if your feet refuse to tap. This is a band that go beyond hipster arms crossed snobbery and aim to engage, thrill and make you shake it. Get your head out of your ass. Smash Fashion light it up! Whether you like The Dirty Pearls, Velvet Revolver, The Compulsions, classic Sweet or any combination of catchy hard or “glam” influenced rock, Smash Fashion have something for you. This band tears it up in the spirit of rock’s sparkling past but with an eye on modern love.
